Stainless Steel Fast Pin 5/32in DiameterPIN-F-532X1-12
Stainless Steel fast pins are a great solution for securing parts on your boat which need to be quickly and easily adjusted. It is not recommended to use these on side stays, a forestay or a backstay as they do not offer positive locking and could come out under sail. Material is 18-8 stainless steel.
The smooth ring handle on these pins won't catch on parts. A spring-loaded, non-locking retaining ball pops out to hold pins in place. The hole should be as close to the diameter as possible, but not larger than the diameter at extended ball height. The ends are chamfered for easy insertion. Breaking strength is measured as single shear, which is the force required to break the pin into two pieces. Also known as faspins. Choose a pin with a lanyard to keep the pin from getting lost when removed.
